    Great watch, very classy and well balanced presentation

    If it is even half as good looking, it is worth at twice itís price.

    I love that watch. Tried one on in New York a while ago. Beautiful flecked dial and surprisingly slim for a GS. Really balanced dial design and perfect size.

    Hi Ryan, congratulations on the multi arrivals. What are your first impressions of the Yema, if you do not mind me asking? Did you go sapphire or mineral? Did you order a leather strap in addition? Sorry to bombard with questions, but these really interest me. Probably the French connection - yes, I am that shallow!

    French connection was exactly why I went for it! So I ordered mineral for the vintage feel. Quality is fine for a £1k watch (actually more like £700). Bracelet is thin but again a faithful reproduction. Needs a strap I feel so I'll get one. At the end of the day it isn't a modern BP 50 Fathoms quality wise of course but it is a like for like remake of a 60s classic and does that very well and for less than a grand it does a decent job and you won't worry about destroying it. I'm happy with it at what I paid for it.

    Finally got an OEM bracelet so this feels like a new arrival.

    Stunning watch from David cheers, perfect size, proportions and the dial is just sensational. My 007 and 009 have been left in the drawer

    Hard to tell from the pic, but looks like a rectangle dial.

    That looks really nice, Iíve been looking at these but unsure due to the increased thickness over the 5 digit Submariner.

    How do you find it?

    I'm enjoying wearing it, find it really comfortable and the height isn't an issue but I do have quite a flat wrist so it sits nicely.

    Also spent the last 2 weeks wearing a Seiko turtle on a NATO strap so this feels small!

    Highly recommended, even after a short time on the wrist it's easy to see why so many rave about this one.

    Nobody? Anyway, it's a Titoni:



    8 years I've been searching for this watch with not a sniff then a few NOS models turn up at a Swiss dealer last week - even the warranty card is signed for this week :D

    Speedmaster Professional Sapphire Sandwich, picked it up from Goldsmith yesterday.
    I am going to wear it today before dropping it off to the watchmaker for the transformation.
    I will post the picture tomorrow once back from the workshop.

    If I ever buy another Speedmaster it will be a sapphire sandwich model. Lovely movement view and hated the constant scratches on my hesalite model.

    That's suffering from the nasty photobucket blur filter they've annoyingly added but looks a nice. Try using postimage as would like to see that one.

    For Citizen it's regular business, so Seiko should up their game as well in this regard. Btw, had the chance compare the LE with the regular black dial one, and the LE came across quite a bit nicer imo. The gray, textured dial and the joyful yellow make the difference.

    They both look lovely watches - I suppose I'm a bit too conservative for the yellow

    The similar-ish quartz models look really good value at near half the Retail of the mechanical - I keep looking at those, the quality looks really good

    It's funny how something quartzy at about 3k seems nowadays 'good value'. Fwiw, I actually agree with you!

    Such a great looking watch!

    A Sinn is definitely high on the want list although I'm a bit smitten with the 155.

    How are you liking the 103?!
